We poison our soul so slowly we never notice. Our deeply engrained midlife habits can change even though it feels impossible to change.

From our wakeup call, we can benefit in large as well as small, seemingly insignificant ways.

After the initial tinge of impatience i quickly moved to, “i hope he is alright. i hope he didn’t get in an accident.”
